C'mon I'm a Dating Coach do you really think I could pick 1 #1 Reason? It's like picking my favorite Marc Anthony song or my favorite Marianne Williamson book.......very difficult......they are all so damn good.

I know you have  been waiting, I know you have been trying, I know you have been praying.

Don't give up. Not now.

Here's why.

So I am going to give you 5 #1 Reasons to not give up on LOVE. 

If you still haven't found a partner who is your friend,  your lover,  your travel companion, your confidante......someone that will have your back through thick and thin, just like you would have theirs......don't give up yet.




#1 When you give up on love, you give up on a piece of yourself. A Piece of your truth, love is already within you.

#1 When you give up on love, someone out there doesn't get to feel LOVED THE WAY ONLY YOU can LOVE. And boy, can you LOVE.......you don't even know the half of it

#1 Romantic healthy love can energize your life, expand your mind and make you want to soar

#1 Romantic healthy love can help you feel a sense of freedom you have never felt (This one came from a close married girlfriend, she actually said she felt more free in a her relationship then she ever did single)

#1 Love heals, Love transforms, Love is powerful.

(my favorite & my own experience) #1 In your "search" for love you get to find yourself again, the dark and the light, you are met face to face with the things you like about yourself and all the things you have wanted to avoid-----but you come out more fully YOU.


So I think it's worth it.

It's worth taking the time and changing patterns that haven't given you the results you want.

It's worth waiting a bit, and not going home with him for instant gratification.

It' worth leaving the guy that makes you feel like it's ALWAYS a struggle.

It's worth getting to know that guy that isn't perfect, but he might just be perfect for you.

It's worth getting a coach, going to church, praying, having a strong spiritual support group or seeing a therapist if this will help you remember how to LOVE yourself again.

It's worth doing whatever it takes, in sickness or in health, for richer or for poorer, till death do you part to

build a loving relationship with yourself and re-introduce yourself to you again........isn't it? Of course it is. And if you ask me I DO.  

NOW that's love. And that is not something you just give up on.

So now I'd love to hear from you. What's your reason for not giving up on love? What do you do to continue a healthy love with yourself? Do you think the relationship you have with yourself affects the type of romantic relationship you attract?
